Temporary Recruiter Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Dallas, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at American Heart Association in February 2014.

Interview Details – I applied for a temporary recruiter on the American Heart Association careers page. A few days later one of their recruiters called me. She conducted an initial phone screen during the phone screen we discussed the position and my previous experience. It was either the next day or the day after they requested a in person interview. I then went to the offices in Dallas to interview. The interview style was a panel of tow managers and myself. Shortly into the interview I realized that even though the job description didn't list a firm understanding of medical terminology, for this position it was going to be key and I was not a good fit for this position. I received a call a week later and was informed the position was cancelled.

Interview Question – I was caught off guard when asked if I had connections within the pediatric project management field?   Answer Question

Managing Editor Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Dallas, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at American Heart Association in July 2009.

Interview Details – Panel interview with no moderator, while lunch is being served. Nothing but a series of awkward silences, as there was no direction to the process, and people had their mouths full most of the time. This was followed by a 2:1 interview. Each question was taken verbatim from an interview manual, and the same questions were asked for each prior position I had held. There was little or no attempt by the interviewers to stray from this script. Although the position was to be largely a matter of personnel management, the interview process was as dehumanizing as possible, and seemed to be designed to remove any room for personal responses or insight. Halfway though I realized that I wasting my time since I likely would not last long in such an environment. I was shocked when my recruiter said they had loved me, and an offer would be forthcoming. I was asked to provide an additional reference. Three days later I was informed they had offered someone else the position. None of my references had been contacted.

Interview Question – Name a college professor who had a profound impact on you?   View Answer

Manager, Corporate and Scientific Meetings Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Dallas, TX

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at American Heart Association in March 2011.

Interview Details – I don't understand. I spoke with HR and she was very nice. I passed the first two interviews with her. Then I interviewed with the Senior Manager and the department team. I studied hard and knew everything there was to know about the AHA including current events and made a presentation. The panel said they were impressed. Even the Senior Manager said he was impressed, and I exceeded or met the requirements. I have close to 20 years experience and really, sincerely thought I would be up for the next step in the process. The next thing I know, I got a roughly written note saying I didn't make the finals. No explanation. No word about what happened, what they were looking for I didn't have...nothing. I don't get it. Maybe they don't know what they want, since this position keeps appearing over and over and over every few months. I wrote a couple of notes to the HR lady, since we were on good terms. No response. The only thing I can figure out is she doesn't know what they want either. What a disappointment!! Oh, and by the by...some of the questions were strange....like, "What are your expectations of this position?" (Huh? Didn't you just describe this in the job description? What is one supposed to answer...oh I expect the AHA to pay for my dream yacht? (ha ha) I mean really people. What gives?? I am so hurt.

Interview Question – Tell us about yourself. What were you responsible for in your last job?   View Answer
